Gradual Reintroduction of Visiting at NHS Grampian Sites

In order to support visiting within Aberdeen Maternity hospital, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Dr Grays Hospital visitor passes will be introduced in these clinical environments as of the 1st of September.

Anyone identified as the essential or designated visitor for patients in any of the above three hospital settings will be provided with a visitor pass.  This will be discussed with the patient and the visitor prior to any planned visit.  All other guidance remains the same including that all visits are by pre-arranged appointment and that ID (preferably photo id) is required by all visitors. 

Update 24/07/2020

We are pleased to confirm that as of Monday 27th July, most hospital areas are now able to accommodate one designated visitor per patient by prearranged appointment.

There are some areas that still have restrictions place. Notably, surgical wards will continue to offer visiting for patients who have been in hospital for 14 days. In critical care areas, individual plans are in place dependent on clinical need. 

Please check the guides below for more information on the restrictions for some sites or speak to the staff on the ward involved if you are not certain of the local arrangements. Please remember, visiting is only by prearranged appointment.

Thank you for you continued support and cooperation.
